Come see a great play by a Tony Award–winning playwright and benefit the Center for the Art of Translation. Our friends at Berkeley Rep are donating a portion of the ticket proceeds to the Center for the Thursday, September 27 performance of Chinglish, a play about translation and hilarious miscommunication. The theater has reserved a block of very good seats in section A ($61) and B ($45). Pay by credit card here or send a check today to guarantee your seating. Invite your significant other, friend, and anyone else who appreciates cross-cultural communication. But hurry, as availability is limited.
David Henry Hwang won three Obies and the Tony Award for Best Play with popular scripts like M. Butterfly and FOB. Now he’s back with a canny comedy of cross-cultural errors. In Chinglish, an American businessman heads to Asia to score a lucrative contract for his family’s firm—but the deal isn’t the only thing getting lost in translation when he collides with a Communist minister, a bumbling consultant and a suspiciously sexy bureaucrat. Two-time Obie-winner Leigh Silverman returns to Berkeley Rep to stage the twists in a terrific play she took to Broadway. Love is on the line, and laughter fills the ledger in Chinglish.
